Jet off to the Caribbean or Latin America with Delta as part of its latest flash sale, with awards from 24,000 SkyMiles round-trip. While it’s not the first time Delta has offered awards to the Caribbean and Latin America as part of a flash sale — and it probably won’t be the last — these are great redemptions that could be worth taking advantage of.

For these flash sale redemptions, you’ll need to travel between April 1 and May 20, 2019. Although Delta’s deals site only lists select routes for these deals, we’re seeing quite a few other airports included as well as these promo redemption rates extending beyond the given dates. In addition, we’re seeing the lowest award fares from 24,000 SkyMiles round-trip, while the deals site shows the lowest at 38,000 SkyMiles round-trip.

At current TPG valuations, 24,000 SkyMiles are worth approximately $288. Adding in taxes and fees, which seem to hover around $50-$75, you could be getting away with some steals on tickets that often cost several hundred dollars.

If you’re short on miles, remember that you can instantly transfer American Express Membership Rewards points into your SkyMiles account at 1:1 ratio.

Head to Delta.com and search around for the route of your choice to see how it’s pricing. The sale ends on Nov. 14 at 11:59pm ET, so book soon if you want to take advantage of the deal.
